So the other day my friend Lou brought me some food (well, a ton of food, so
much, I had nowhere to put it all). One of the things he brought me was some
fruit. Now, don't get me wrong, I love fruit, I guess. But I'd never buy fruit
myself. I have reasons. Well, truthfully, actually I just have a problem with
bananas. Let me explain...
I actually can see myself liking bananas, they are probably one of the most convenient
fruits available, coming in their own easily removable packaging and all. I
respect the banana. But, I have serious issues with this certain fruit. Let me
explain my fear of bananas and you'll understand my dilemma:
When I was a child, not exactly sure on the date, time or place since I have
blocked this from my memory, but I was young... I was eating a banana. Well, I
guess this banana was left out too long in a bad banana area, where only the bad
fruit had hung out, and it had become infested with fruit flies. However, I did
not notice this till the second bite I took of said banana. After I noticed that
there were little worm like things inside the fruit, I proceeded to puke, and
continued to do so till my stomach was not only empty, but I had actually
reversed my intestines and my stomach was sitting on the pavement. After some
cleansing and quite a bit of gagging, I got my stomach in the right place and
for over 20 years I have never eaten a banana again.
So Lou shows up with bananas the other day....
I have eaten two so far, carefully slicing them and looking for anything
moving, no movement, I'll eat it. Bananas are not that bad when they don't have
